    Thinking about linux


    I have a question, how does it do networking with Windows. I network to transfer music from the family machine that I ripped then lost the CD And I play Quake 3 with friends at LAN parties. This question is keeping me from linux.

    You can use a program called SAMBA to network with windows, its not to hard to settup and then be able to transfere files

    I found that using FTP has less trouble, and is very simple to set up. I use Pure-FTPd

    As for quake, I've heard ID's games work well on linux, as long as you have the graphics drivers installed (this IMHO is easier if you have an Nvidia graphics card).

    Yep. I did it all through college. There are native Linux clients for several popular LAN-party games such as Quake 3, Unreal Tournament GOTY/2003/2004, and all the Doom series as well (including Doom 3).
